Baseball: A Film by Ken Burns
At one point in Baseball, poet Donald Hall remarks, “Baseball, because of its continuity over the space of America and the time of America, is a place where memory gathers.” This quote is a fine primer to prepare viewers for Ken Burns’s epic documentary, which unfolds across 9 chapters that explore everything from the sport’s origins, to its role in the quest for racial justice, to its intersection with the immigrant experience in America. At 18.5 hours, the documentary is the sort of entertainment that viewers can enjoy far into the foreseeable future. This special edition DVD set even includes an additional 10th chapter, along with 2.5 hours of deleted scenes, unseen interviews, and footage of Ken Burns crushing baseballs in the palm of his hand.
